End of Support for Vista


By Michael J - Posted on 09 April 2012

Microsoft Vista has reached the end of main stream support.

"This means that no-charge (free) support will end, no further service packs will be created, nor will future IE versions (such as IE10) be available for Vista. Also, no new non-security hotfixes will be created or be available without an Extended Hotfix Support Agreement (EHSA). This will last for 5 years before support for Vista completely ends in 2017."
